• Short Summary

    American artist Clark Fay has the roof of his 1929 Austin car thatched.

  • Description

    Berwick, Sussex.

    Various C/Us show a man working on a thatched roof. When he stands down we see he has successfully thatched the roof of an old Austin car dating from 1929.

    The car belongs to an American artist called Clark Fay. He looks satisfied with the thatching. He and some friends get into the car and drive through the countryside. From the other side of a high hedge it looks like a small house is being driven along the road. A man gardening (in a suit) looks up in disbelief. The car pulls up in a village.
